{Recipe}Salted Chocolate Chip Chickpea Blondie Cake-Vegan & Gluten Free

I made this "cake"  for my oldest's birthday and it was the perfect little treat that was actually pretty healthy!  You can find the original recipe here.
Ingredients:
1 can (15 oz) chickpeas, rinsed and drained
1/2 cup natural peanut butter (or use any kind of nut butter)
1/3 cup maple syrup
2 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/3 cup vegan chocolate chips plus more for the top
sea salt for the top

To make:
  • Spray 9 inch round pan with cooking spray (you can also use an 8 x 8 square pan)
  • In a food processor (I used my Vitamix) combine all ingredients except chocolate chips and sea salt. Process until smooth.  Try not to eat all of the batter right now.
  • Fold in 1/3 cup chocolate chips
  • Spread batter into pan and smooth out with spatula. Sprinkle 2 TBS (or more) chocolate chips over the top.
  • Bake for 20-25 until a toothpick comes out clean. Edges will be turning a light brown. Let cool on wire rack for 20 minutes  and sprinkle with sea salt (optional)
    before serving.

Thanks for the recipe. I am in the process of going Gluten Free as i have been diagnosed with Lupus and the idea of giving up treats just seems too hard, but this looks like a really yummy option. Have a great week!
